After a bit of hard thinking I decided the book would hold a little shop that would sell , perfums, soaps and other beauty products. Even though the shop is decorated in 1900 's style it is to be a shop that you could find these days and it sells oldfashioned as well as more modern products.
The first thing I tried was finding a client for the shop.............that was a big problem for with a doll inside there would be no room left for the items I wanted to sell.
To solve the problem I added a lady to the decoupaged wall. She is part of the decor but she also adds just a little bit of life to the shop.
I found her on the internet and I printed her 2 times so I could use foam tape between the two layers and give her a little bit of dimension.
I could not resist adding a few things with a Parisian theme so it would be very clear where the shop was .
Then I built a whole lot of shelves into the book so I would gave enough room for all the perfumes and stuff I wanted to sell.
Here is a picture of what the fully stocked shop will look like.
Tomorrow I am going to show you how to make some of the items in the shop.
